Protect Environmental Regulations at EPA 5/15

The US EPA is undertaking a review of their existing regulations, following President Trump's executive order asking federal agencies to "to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens." This could threaten the continuation and enforcement of critical regulations to protect our water, air, and climate. Submit a comment to EPA in support of these regulations, and the role they play in protecting our health and climate!

Public comments on this review are due May 15th! You can submit comments here, and read more about the regulatory proceeding here.

This 2016 OMB report to Congress on benefits and costs of federal regulations has good information on the benefits of EPA regulations. As shown in Table 1-1 in the report, the estimated benefits of recent major EPA regulations exceed the estimated costs by several times. Indivisible Berkeley has useful resources for submitting comments.
